Narappa, the remake of Vetrimaaran’s Asuran is a tale of class differences and casteism. It will follow the story of a lower-class family and the oppression they face by the upper-class landlords. Asuran was well-received from critics and the audiences alike when it came out. Dhanush, the main lead in the original put forth a stellar performance. The Telugu remake directed by Srikanth Addala is bankrolled by Suresh Productions. The ensemble cast features Priyamani, Karthik Ratnam, and Prakash Raj.

On the work front, Venkatesh is also working on Drishyam 2 and F3: Fun and Frustration.
